Betting Tips: D+D Real Czech Masters

Bernd Wiesberger: 14/1
Finished T32 in his last event – The Open at Royal Portrush. He claimed the Scottish Open the week before, which followed a runner-up finish in Ireland – helping to make up four top 10s and two victories in his last seven starts. Making his first appearance here since a MC in 2014. Ranks 6th for GIR and 14th for SG: Approach the green. 

Lee Westwood: 14/1
Finished T4 in his last start at the Open, one of two top 10s in his last four starts on the European Tour. Best finish at Czech Masters was T9 in 2017. 5th SG: Approach the green,  12th scoring average, 13th SG: Tee to green, 27th birdies.

Eddie Pepperell: 14/1
Pepperell hasn’t had the most consistent spell (T43-71-T51 in his last three starts) but he did finish T4 at the Irish Open and 2nd at the Betfred British Masters. He was also T9 here last year and T5 in 2017. Ranks 21st Scoring average.

Thomas Pieters: 18/1
The 2015 champion almost defended his title a year later when he finished runner-up, and was T9 last year – so it’s clearly a course he feels comfortable on. T67-T20 in his last two starts on Tour. Ranks 9th SG: off the tee, 11th SG: Tee to green, 18th birdie average and 30th scoring average.

Andrea Pavan: 20/1
The defending champion comes back to the Czech Masters following a T25 at the PGA Tour’s Barracuda Championship, which came after a T4 at the Scottish Open and MC at Portrush. His T4 was one of two top-5s this season, the other being his victory at the BMW International Open. Ranks 20th GIR. 

Tom Lewis: 25/1
The Englishman finished T6 here last year, and heads to Prague after a T11 at The Open Championship. Ranks 9th GIR on the European Tour this season. 

Gavin Green: 33/1
Green is making his debut here in Prague, but has three top 10s in his last five starts –although he is teeing up for the first time since a MC at the Scottish open so hoping to rebound with a win here. Ranks 5th GIR,19th birdie average, 20th SG: Off the tee.

Lee Slattery: 40/1
If you want someone with course form, Slattery has finished 2nd (“17) and T4 (’18) in his last two outings at the Czech Masters. He also comes in to this event with a T9 at the Scottish open and T27 at Royal Portrush.

J.C. Ritchie: 66/1
Hasn’t played on the European Tour since a T26 at the Belgian knockout, but he’s had a huge amount of successs on the Sunshine Tour this year – including two wins and three top fives in his last three starts. He was also T24 here when he played last year. 

Rikard Karlberg: 80/1
T13 the last time he played this event in 2015, and while he has only made one of five European Tour cuts this year, he will come in with confidence after finishing T6 and T4 in his last two starts on the Challenge Tour.
